May the 4th!


We have a bit of a conundrum today: it's May 4th as you probably have noticed on the calendar. This means 2 things, here in the Netherlands May 4th is Memorial Day and the 5th is Liberation Day. But it's also May the Forth be with you, Star Wars Day. So what to do?

Why not celebrate or remember both?

So here we go!

And to commemorate all people who have put down their lives to secure our freedom:

Bring Out Your Dead!


Still making casualty counters for Black Powder on and off. This one is supposed to portray a Napoleonic Dutch/ Belgian Hussar killed in the Hundred Days Campaign.

Just a small update today I'm afraid. More is coming though so watch this space.

Brothers of the Broken Sword!


An unusual subject for today's update I might say. I have finally found time to paint up some of the GW Deathwing Terminators I have lying around.
Among the terminator mini's awaiting paintjobs are some old white metal Deathwing in need of re-basing, some newer plastic termies with Thunderhammer and shields and even the new Dark Vengeance Terminator squad.

This finished squad has powerclaws and looks quite fearsome, if I say so myself. As always it was a pain to paint the white terminator armour, I think that for the next squad I am going try out the olive-coloured basecoates that are so popular at the moment.

Anyway here they are: For the Emperor and the Lion!

Cheers Sander
